Huntington Beach Surfing Tandem in Surf City

Huntington Beach, CA--Don't try this unless you know how to surf! On rare occasion you'll see some fancy surfing near the Huntington Beach Pier. Photographer Chris MacDonald happened upon one such situation and managed to capture this exciting surfing session in which a woman rides on the surf board with the man, then mounts onto his shoulders for one spectacular wave / show.

Huntington Beach is a paradise for surfers seeking enough wave action to be able to ride most days. It is not known as having the best waves in the world, but on the West Coast it is one of the best places providing consistencies of around two -to- four foot waves. And when a storm rolls in from the Pacific, the waves can crest at around five -to- eight feet.

Surfing events throughout the year don't generally include contest categories for tandem surfing, but there are many surfing events such as US Open of Surfing (the biggest) and league competition for National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA), and other surfing associations and groups.
